Subject RE: [PROPOSAL] MetaModel for the Apache Incubator
Date Fri, 07 Jun 2013 07:22:55 GMT
Okay, got it!

We looked at it and it looks fine. We would need to make explicit in exhibit A that it's "excluding
xBaseJ code", since that will be removed from the project when it moves to Apache. Other than
that we're happy to sign the SGA.

Software Grant Agreement [1].  Essentially, the legal framework for
granting shared copyright to the ASF for the donated code.
